Texas university suspends Greek chapters after pledge dies

Texas State Suspends Fraternities Sororities After Pledge Dies Texas State University

Matthew Ellis, 20, a sophomore from Humble, wasn't breathing when officers arrived at an apartment 2 miles from the San Marcos campus around 11:30 a.m. Monday.

Authorities say Ellis was a pledge for the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at Texas State. Four Texas state fraternities were handed suspensions in January, ranging from two to five years, for alcohol violations stemming from a party last year in which 20-year-old Jordin Taylor, who belonged to the Alpha Delta Pi sorority, was fatally struck and dragged by a bus near Martindale.

University spokesperson Matt Flores said the university is investigating whether the fraternity held any social events preceding Ellis' death.

Ellis is the latest of several students to die after parties while pledging fraternities this year.

In her email, Trauth stated she has suspend all activities of fraternities and sororities until a review has been completed.

All Greek chapters on Texas State University's campus have been suspended in the wake of a death that happened Sunday.

As a result of this tragedy, I have suspended activities of all Greek fraternity and sorority chapters at Texas State. Preliminary investigation indicates that alcohol may have been a factor in his death but investigators are awaiting toxicology results.

A message left at the Phi Kappa Psi national office for comment was not immediately returned. He was pronounced dead about an hour later.

It is imperative that our entire university community develop a culture that places the highest priority on the safety of its students, faculty, and staff.
